Okay, so I'm sitting at my favorite birahane enjoying an Efes. But, I want another Efes. If I say "Başka bira alabilir miyim?", he will think I want another beer but not an Efes, maybe a Tuborg. What would be the best phrase to use here? Öbur bira?, bir daha bira?

@Öğrenci 1 - check out our lesson on the accusative suffx: https://turkishteatime.com/lesson/10/

@Öğrenci 2 - Yep! Any of these will work:

Bir daha alabilir miyim?
Bir tane daha alabilir miyim?
Bir bira daha albilir miyim?

Caught myself making tea for turkish tea time today.

another question about using the accusative:

"the other bottle" = "diğer şişe".
Why is it not "diğer şişesi" using the accusative? Because it's not "a other bottle (another bottle)" but specific "THE other bottle?

First off, with the accusative, it would take buffer y - so "diğer şişeyi."

Diğer şişeyi is definitely used. For example,

Diğer şişeyi getir = Bring the other bottle.

I think you're referring to the question in the review. The reason we don't have the accusative in that answer is because there's no verb, so it's not a direct object. Remember that in order for a word to take the accusative, it must both be specific and a direct object.

Why does the answer to the last review question require both the "possessive" (-i/-si) ending, as well as the "accusative" (-i/-yi/-ni) ending?

I was expecting it to only require the accusative because of "Seçmek", but instead of "diğeri seçtik" being correct, it was "diğerini seçtik."

You all are doing an awesome job, so thank you! keep it up!
